Cultural Diversity Magazine – Gender Equality Good Practices of MERCOSUR

Special Secretariat for Culture
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
Realization of two editions of the magazine "Cadernos da Diversidade Cultural – Boas Práticas do MERCOSUR" that were themed by cultural policies to promote gender equality. The journal aims to produce specific material on cultural diversity and addresses two interdependent dimensions: the first is linked to the recognition and strengthening of Afrodescendant collectives, indigenous cultures, women and LGTBIQ, children, young people, the elderly and others. The second revolves around the sensitization of society in general about the cultural rights of different groups, from the perspective of gender, the federalization of public policies and interculturality as guiding criteria.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 
Resulted from the production of the Journal: promotion of exchange of experiences in cultural public policies between MERCOSUR member countries; expansion of the dialogue between cultural public policy-takers in South America; establishment of a dialogue forum for discussion of common problems between the countries of the region; and the dissemination of knowledge in cultural policies to promote gender equality. In addition, the production of specialized materials related to cultural diversity contributes to the professionalization of cultural workers in the region, and to stimulate their positioning as promoters of the culture of peace and social inclusion.
